This game helps students review CVC words. It is played similar to the traditional UNO game but requires students to read CVC words on each play. One great feature is that this game is designed to appeal to both younger and older learners. Younger students will enjoy the clear, large-print text and bold colors while older students will appreciate the lack of cute graphics and no-nonsense formatting of the game. Older students can enjoy keeping score, if desired, and younger students or struggling readers can play without the trick cards to simplify the instructions and reading tasks.
Included are a title page, instruction page (for teachers), a "hints, tips and ideas" page (for teachers), 36 word cards, 4 each of SKIP, REVERSE, DRAW TWO and DRAW FOUR cards, 8 WILD cards and 4 blank cards (for teacher use).
In order to play this game, students should be able to read two-letter words, CVC words, and the sight word "the". In addition, the WILD cards include two options for "challenge words" - the first set of WILD cards contains CCVC words with initial blends and the second set contains CVCs words (CVC + final s). Either, both, or neither set may be used, depending on the needs of the students who are playing.
Suitable for ages 5+.
